Happy Homesteading Giveaway!

I want to say thank you to everyone for supporting me in my writing, photography, gratitude, and journey into an agriculture-filled life.

As a blog evolves, there is a subtle fear that you will lose faithful readers. Yet, as I’ve grown and changed as a person over the past two years (and it reflected in my blog), so many of you stayed and encouraged me as I struggled to find “my place”. Amazingly, even more of you joined along the way and became instant blog companions.

You. all. amaze. me.

    From scratch: I like creating a new shrubbery or rosebed from scratch – damned hard work in the rocky hills here of Turkey, but a good sense of achievement when it’s all done πŸ™‚

  12. As for ‘evolving’, well that’s only natural, AND right. As humans, most of us do change; we don’t stay the same person for life. So YES, your blog can, should and will change as your move along through life’s journey.
    Have a fab Sunday Miss C.

  13. Now as for recipes, well here on the farm we try and create whatever we can from what we have. One simple dish we had last night was a light salad made from the baby leaves of our broad beans plants. Quickly rinsed (no need for anything else, we dont use chemicals, I added a small amount of olive oil (pressed from our own trees), some dried black basil (from last summer) and a little pomegranate molasses (reduce-simmered fresh pomegranate juice from October). Fresh, tasty and healthy too πŸ™‚

  14. This is such a great giveaway Caitlin! I’m so excited to have another blogger who’s into farming since that’s my thing these days!
